Chelsea could complete €50 million deal for Dutch international and loan him back to current club for remainder of season: Reports
Chelsea are reportedly considering a €50 million move for Inter Milan right-back Denzel Dumfries during the January transfer window.
According to Corriere dello Sport (as per Sempreinter ), the Blues are looking to reignite their interest in the 26-year-old defender and would want to loan him back to Inter straight away.
The report claims that Chelsea attempted to sign Dumfries at the end of the summer transfer window but wanted him to remain at San Siro for the rest of the season.
Dumfries is considered one of Europe’s brightest full-backs, with his pace and attacking ability seen as great positives. The Dutch international is also used to playing in a back four and as a right wing-back, but still has three years left on his current contract.
After starring for the Netherlands at Euro 2020, Dumfries signed for the Nerazzurri last summer from PSV Eindhoven. He has since scored seven times in 54 appearances.
The attacking full-back also has 37 international caps to his name and has played a part in all of Inter’s games so far this season.
